The rooms are large and well provisioned. The food is good and plentiful. The hostess is amazing - thank you Vanessa - you are the epitome of a good hostess. The view - well let's say there are few views that good. Didn't use the free WiFi but that would have been most useful on other business trips.

You have a separate entrance to your fully equipped appartment room - Kitchen, Bed, sofa, separate bathroom. All bright and clean. Breakfast is great and served on the big terrace. Stunning view down to False Bay where Beach Road is 5 min. drive away.

We spent a wonderful week with Vanessa and the polygon Peter - fantastic hosts. Knowledgeable about the Cape and consummate hosts. If you are looking for a central located place from which to explore the wine lands - this is the place for you. Highly recommended.

I have stayed with Vanessa and Peter on a few occasions and always look forward to my stay at the little gem that is Arican Dreams. The service, rooms and breakfasts are world class along with the warmth exuded by my wonderful hosts. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when I am down in the CT area. Andrew Bahlmamn Johannesburg
